Annual Conference Mission Project

mission-outreach

Each year, as Annual Conference approaches for the Desert Southwest Conference, we invite the United Methodist Churches to participate in a special mission project. The first part of this year’s Annual Conference Mission Project is monetary donations to support the Asylum Aid and Border Ministries Fund. This fund provides financial support to our churches who are engaged in asylum and border mission work, helping people who come from all over the world to the United States, seeking asylum and safety from human predators. (you can contribute through Lakeview and indicate it is for the AC Mission Project). We are also inviting donations to “The Inn” at First UMC Tucson, which provides temporary shelter and support for asylum seekers.

“The Inn receives families who have gone through U.S. Customs and Border Protection (C.B.P.), or I.C.E., and are released to continue the immigration process. Our volunteers provide temporary shelter, hospitality, food, clothing, showers, and compassion for these vulnerable families, giving them a safe place to stay while they transition to the next part of their journey. Since its beginnings in December of 2016, The Inn has served more than 56,000 people.”
